Annotation/Abstract

Demand-driven acquisition programs are becoming more common as a method of collection development. This article first discusses traditional collection development practices in academic law libraries and outlines the mechanics and goals of the demand-driven acquisitions model. It then considers the effects of that model on law library collections and collection development practices.
